sorry for the slow updates!
Ive been busy with my new job, I actually got my first real art job and I am over the moon
its not totally appealing work but I get to paint and thats more than I could ask for, SO MUCH BETTER THAN WORKING IN RETAIL hahaha
So yeah, I've been painting backgrounds for a chinese themed animation about old chinese medicines, its great!
The scariest thing I've learnt from this whole experience though is how tough the job market actually is and how important it is to network. I wouldn't have heard of this job if my friend didn't work there or tell me about it. Really need to work on getting myself out there as well as working on my craft.
Heres an environment I did today, played with layering textures and painting over, something I've never really done.
oo i like that last one!
sb most art copied to page 1

nice schedule, but sketching 1 hour everyday isn't enough dude haha ! Anyway, i think you should spend a bit more time studying values, since i see it's where you struggle the most, and pay a bit more attention on edges, especially on the face studies on the previous page !! Keep it up !
The Electric Ant- Thanks so much
Velocity Kendall- glad you like it! thank you
Christoffer- You should! my advice would be to start small with it, its really easy to say you are going to practice 5 hours a day compared to actually doing it, focus on what you actually know you can handle and then build from there
kikindaface- Thanks for the tips! I agree, my values are pretty weak overall, I think my figures from imagination are probably even worse. Agreed! gotta push more sketching time
Congrats on the new job also if you havent done it yet always bring a mini sketchbook with you do some sketches on break
Everything is permitted

been awhile since I've posted with site being down for awhile and things going on my life.
I've turned 20 and finished all my assignments for uni for this year (so PLENTY of time for personal art study!)
Hope everyones been well.
Heres some work I did between the gap...
Two pieces from tonight and last night, hoping to polish these further soon.
Wow really great environmental sketches!
Polished up the one from before
Looking good! You can really see progress with your digital studies
Heres some perspective study, been working through a video I bought off ctrlpaint.com
only 10 bucks! and explains perspective super clearly
Thanks DK_sketch! drawing cubes gets repetitive fast but I'm learning lots
more perspective study and a quick painting
